Ok, I am having a boy and I still have no idea what I am going to name him..we like Axel but I don't know...anyone any suggestions on something kind of Italian or latin?

It makes me think of that kilt wearing singer from Guns and Roses. I used to know a Dutch boy called Axel too. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I think it's one of those that has to grow on you. My favourite Italian names are Gianni and Stefano.

He'll probably be called Axl Foley, and teased with Eddie Murphy's annoying laugh in Beverly Hills Cop.

Any guidelines? Does he have any brothers/sisters?

I doubt anyone he grows up with will know who Axl Foley or Guns n Roses are. If you like it go for it!

Italian Names- Dante, Emelio, Lorenzo, Marcello, Marco

Forgot one- Domonic Axel is fine if that is what you like.

ok, I guess I have a lot of thinking to do... :(

I wasn't saying it's a bad name. If you like it, it doesn't matter what we think. Cheer up. :)

I was bashed for my unusual name too. You have to go with what you like. I can understand you wanted input as I did too. But after I read all the bad postings I was a little disappointed, but we are still going to use the name. Your not laying your child low if you give them a regular name, they will just find some thing else to tease them about. Anyways, school age is not forever, I don’t hear MATURE adults making fun of some ones name. When you’re an adult you able to distinguish between worthy people and unworthy people, so your child as an adult is not going to pay any attention to such a loser.

Don't be sad, Pick what you like. Nobody in my family like my baby's name. It did hurt my feelings at first and then I decided that if my husband and I like it, thats all that mattered.

What about the name Ricardo. I know a Ricardo, he's very handsome and smart. We're naming our son Caden...I don't know the origin though.

thank you ladies, I am not upset..if I ask is because I want the truth not someone telling me its nice when that is not what they are really thinking in the back of their heads..is just soo hard b/c half of the people like it and the other half thinks it has something to do with an Ax! lol! I know is kind of funny! but then I don't want a plain name either...I guess I will keep looking...

If you like that name then that's what you should call your little man. If you still want suggestions how about Luca?


Lissi - May 14

I like Lucca. That's a good one!
